Mouth of the Magaguadavic Camping

20 sites · RVs, Tents100 acres · Caithness, NB
Situated in Caithness, New Brunswick, where the Magaguadavic River meets the Passamaquoddy Bay on the Bay of Fundy. Once owned by high profile Saint Andrews-By-The-Sea resident, Robert Pagan, the property, like other properties in the area, were granted to American Loyalist Solders of Scottish Highlanders, and named for Caithness, Scotland, the place where Golf began. When the US Revolutionary War ended, the King of Holland was chosen to define the boundary between the United States and Canada. He chose the “St Croix River”. The problem was, nobody knew where the St Croix River was. That name had been used by the French, but had not been used in a very long time. Canadians believe the Schoduc River was the St Croix. American’s believe the Wolastoq River (now called the St John River) was the St Croix River. The local North American Indigenous people (the MicMacs or Mi'kmaqs) told Robert Pagan of a place called “Bone Island” where their history told of Europeans living and dying there. Pagan did an archaeological dig on “Bone Island” and found the remains of the French colonists and their settlement. This proved “Bone Island”, also known as “Dochet Island” or “Saint Croix Island", was the site of Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Monts' ill-fated 1604 settlement. Based on this, the Boundary Commission agreed that the Schoduc River was the Saint Croix River and therefore, the international boundary between Canada and America. The survivors of the 1604/1605 winter move from St Croix Island to Port-Royal in Nova Scotia (two years before the European arrival in Jamestown, Virginia). Without the work of Robert Pagan, this campsite and half of New Brunswick, including the Capital City of Fredericton and half of the City of Saint John would have been part of Province of Massachusetts Bay (later Maine). In the 1800's this property was part of a 1000 acre lot of land owned by two brother McKenzie, who were Sea Captains. Since the late 1960s, the property was the summer home of Ben and Marg Leland, parents to 14 children and 50 grandchildren. Today, there are four (4) separate fields available for campers - Barnes' Point, Charlies Garden, the Villa Point and the Main Beach. The property has thousands of feet of shoreline and several beaches to enjoy. We even have our own private island, Blueberry Island. A really unique and quiet place to stay. Learn more about this land: Natural long grass fields for camping, some mowed midseason. There are several shale beaches on the tidal salt water. There is also access to the Fresh Water of the Magaguadavic River. Kayakers looking for more of a challenge may choose to paddle the Salt Waters of the Passamaquoddy Bay past Midjik Bluff. Those looking for calmer and warmer waters, may want to choose to go from the campsite, up the Magaguadavic River to the beautiful Saint George Basin and the Saint George Gorge, passing the Three Sisters and the newest Bald Eagles Nest (at the most eastern end of the Campsite). Pass by Silver Island arriving at the Saint George Basin. Disembark at the Basin Boat Ramp and take a short walk up Portage Street to Main Street. Enjoy an ice cream at Pete’s Dairy Bar. Also a short walk to the Saint George Mall, the Historic Granite Post Officer, the Saint George Dam, Fish Ladder, the Old Pulp Mill, the Country Market, and more. A quiet spot, away from noise and light pollution, where the fresh water meets the salt water. WiFi Connection 01: TP-Link_33DD_2G WiFi Connection 02: TP-Link_33DD_5G WiFi Password: 47528963

Shannon’s Farm

If you are looking to disconnect from the insanity which has consumed our world come visit our farmstead. Turn off your devices and embrace nature the way nature was intended to be, balanced harmony. The property is conveniently located in rural New Brunswick and is within a 1 hour drive of 3 major cities including the Fundy Coast. Nestled by rolling hills of natural fields and flowers surrounded by forested trails perfect for hiking or taking a casually walk-about surrounded by nature. Star gazing is spectacular here as we have almost zero light interference from any surrounding properties and the skyline is as good as being in the prairies. We are a 10 minute drive to Belyea’s Cove and Crafts Cove which are perfect for boat launching and swimming. The Albright brook which runs through the property provides many wonderful sit-spots to relax and meditate. If fishing is something you like to do trout can be caught throughout the season directly from the brook. There are two water-falls within a 5 minute car ride and a fully stocked country store 15 minutes away located in Cambridge-Narrows with beer, spirits and wine. There are also country style restaurants which serve roadhouse style foods 20 minutes from our property. ******Optional Guest Activities and Excursions****** Spiritual Activities: *Meditation *Energy Healing *Honey Bee Energy Healing (this is an off site excursion) *Yoga *Sacred Drumming (these bookings must be done in advance, pricing based on availability) (these are offsite services offered through a 3rd party which must be booked in advance, pricing based on availability) ******Homesteading 101****** *Learn how to become a homesteader with hands on activities with the hosts of this hip camp.

Dream Seed Farm

4 sites · RVs, Tents18 acres · Fredericton, NB
My dream has always been to have a farm to share all the beautiful abundance of life and lots of space to play. Since 2008, I have worked in my home studio sewing Hanging HUGS custom luxury hammocks and shipping them around the world to make the world a cozy place. HUGS have also funded my world travels and humanitarian projects, teaching many people how to make hammocks. You too can learn to sew your own HUG and enjoy it here. An expedition sea kayaker and expert rock climber with more than 20 years experience giving clients a unique look at our province, it's my pleasure to introduce you to my favourite spots. Our sailboat is spacious, comfortable and fun... ready when you are. This farm is a school of life. I am happy to share what I have learned about growing food, and my wife is an amazing cook who can teach how to make Korean food. Lots to do to fill a week, or just kick back in a hammock for a day by the pond, writing journal to reflect, soaking in the peaceful feelings. Learn more about this land: 1800's homestead near Jemseg River where our sailboat is moored. Gardens are abundant, kayaking is beautiful, fishing is good, and swimming is great! Welcome home!
